Kami fuku: Blowing Paper by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kami fuku: Blowing Paper
Series; Eastern Customs: Enumerated Blessings

Eastern Customs: Enumerated Blessings - Attractive image from a Chikanobu series published from about 1887 to 1890. These charming scenes illustrate words that include the syllable fuku (or huku), which has many different meanings, but the primary meaning is blessing or good fortune. Women, children, and families are shown in daily life, playing games, enjoying different traditions, and celebrating festivals and events. Beautifully drawn with fine detail and vibrant color, these lovely Chikanobu designs offer a wonderful look at life in Japan during the Meiji era. A rarely seen series and a nice choice for a collector.

Kami fuku: Blowing Paper - Charming image of two girls playing a game by blowing slips of paper in the air. Notice the tiny bit of paper floating near the girl's forehead at right. A stack of paper and a pair of scissors rests on the floor along with an origami crane. A beauty peers around the corner of a shoji panel, smiling as she watches the girls. Nicely colored with soft shading in the bright blue sky.

Image Size - 9" x 13" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Backed with thin paper. Some light soiling at edges. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
